Tip Tuesday: How to Treat Moss on your Roof
Having a home in Gig Harbor, Tacoma, or Port Orchard you have likely had to contend with moss on your roof. Moss on your roof can seem like a benign issue, but as it grows and gets thicker it works its way under your shingles leading to damage and potential leaks. And if you have a wooden roof, moss growth is more rapid than with a composite or asphalt shingles.
When removing moss from your roof, it’s important to not damage any shingles. We recommend you gently remove the moss using baking soda, powdered laundry detergent, or Moss Out for Roofs and then use a leaf blower to push away any debris.
Finish by applying a Zinc treatment to your roof to kill any moss that may remain, and to help keep future growth at bay. Zinc is safe, and it won’t harm your pets, children, or your lawn.
